It was pointed out to me by a very dear friend that Stella might be a bit of a ham. I'm beginning to believe it. Yesterday morning, under my desk, undercover.....
We had a running conversation.
She felt that paw was getting out of line and needed some reprimanding, sort of a straighten up and walk right come to Stella, moment.
Afterwards she felt quite pleased with herself and played the ingenue for the camera.
Looking at these pictures I was noticing all the changes. Her expressions are more adult, her nose is getting longer and losing all of its young puppy appearance ( she might even grow into those ears!). Gene refers to her as Miss Needle Nose ( or "The Sausage" if it's near dinner time). She's in a long body stage right now. Puppyhood is flying by, at 6 months she'll be close to full grown and physical changes will be slight.
But for here and now, we are savoring with abandon all the baby steps.
